Whoopsie Daisy Cute and Cuddly challenge

Time for another Whoopsie Daisy Challenge and we would like to see your Cute and Cuddly entries. 

Please remember to use a Whoopsi Daisy image, you can get a freebie to use here.

The image I have used is Rosie from the new CD of Linnie's images Daisy and Friends from Joanna Sheen

This image of Rosie is so sweet and cuddly with those chubby cheeks and legs! I printed the black and white version of her, coloured her skin, hair and the frills on her dress with flexmarkers and promarkers and paper pieced her dress with the pink gingham paper from the cd. The backing papers, also from the cd, gave me the idea to create a garden scene because it already had the grass, the stool and the well on it.

Rosie needed to be sitting on something and the perfect answer was the wall from the Pretty Tuff cd from Polkadoodles which has been coloured with flexmarkers and promarkers. 

The trellis at the side is a favourite technique of mine, good old plasterboard tape which has been embossed with brown embossing powder. The flowers climbing the trellis is ribbon from my local haberdashers and the concertina butterflies were made using gingham backing paper from the Daisy and Friends cd.  I finished the scene off with paper roses and leaves tumbling down either side of the wall.

If you would like the template for the butterflies please visit the lovely Shirl's blog here.
